Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

I have a Maytag Jetclean Dishwsher EQ Plus, Model # MDBD880AWQ. The door won't close completely and latch. The racks are not in the way


Answers :

I have the same issue. I need to put full weight on door to get the dishwasher to go. The tongue (on the top of inside) is fine. The problem is in the latch. Looks like I need to take the door apart and get a new latch. I am guessing you have to remove the 8 (?) allen screws on the inside of the door and take a look. Good luck. I will tell you how I do. Post back if you have it figured out.

Whirlpool ADG993 Hi -Had several issues with the door similar to those posted, coming away at the hinge, not sitting flush so wont close.

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

I am not happy with the racks in my new Bosch dishwasher! The bottom rack is not right! The silverware basket is in the back right corner and the silverware catches on the seal on door and it is hard to get to. The tongs are two close together and point the wrong way? The upper rack's tongs are also to close together also. I don't seem to be able to get larger dishes in with these tongs in the way. Having never used the mdl 9000359119 Rev B I had no idea.

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latc ... Maytag 24 in. MDB3700 Built-in Dishwasher

The latch won't engage, so the door won't close. Obviously, this means the machine won't operate. We have removed the racks, checked the hinges to see if anything is lodged there and looked to see if anything is in the unit preventing the door from closing. Could the latch be broken? If so, what is involved in the repair?

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

Maytag Dishwasher Quiet Series 300 Door Leak: Model No. MDB8600AWG: The door leaks both from just beneath the touch pad at the top of the door, leaving a streak down the center face of the door (minor annoyance) as well as from the bottom left and right corners, more of a concern. I have cleaned both door gaskets and tried to reseat the inside door panel, to no avail.

Kitchen circut was accidently turned off. Now whirlpool gold disher will not work(unit was not running and the door was not closed all the way when circuit was turned off, All circuit breakers are on) There are no lights on display when door is closed completely, and it appears to have no power. Worked fine prior, what could it be? The unit has not been removed from under the counter yet. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker on the unit? If so where is it located? Other troubleshooting ideas


Hello- Turn power off. Remove kick panel and cover for power wires. Check connections. If these are ok, most likely suspect is a fuse at the control. This is a little harder to get to. Remove inside door panel screws. Unplug wires and remove panel. F ... Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...
